    I'd like to use it around 70% brightness. I started to use it like this today so Im not too sure what my batter life will be like.

    I'm curious to see what everyones brightness level usage is and what battery life you get.

    I keep mine at 25 percent most of the time and 50 to 70 percent if I'm in a brightly lit area. I don't know how long my battery lasts because I normally don't have that much time in a day to find out. I've only made it to 50 percent charge once and I had spent most of the day using my iPad because it was new and I was figuring it out.

    Bout 70% brightness and get around 7-8 hours of life. Depends on the tasks i'm using of course.

    About 40% with auto-brightness on. I easily get over 10 hours of use per charge.

    I keep it at 0% most of the time except when I'm outside or in a sunny room.

    I couldn't imagine having it at 70% or higher all the time. Maybe I have sensitive eyes because I find that to be way too bright most of the time.

    I usually keep it at 40-50% and the battery lasts what seems forever, compared to my iPhone. However that works out to be about 10 hours or near it. Very nice to have such good battery life. The brightness at 40-50% seems so bright as it is. I never use it at 100%.
